Police: Boy stabbed brother in face, neck in argument over PlayStation
Moncks Corner police on Saturday charged a 13-year-old boy accused of stabbing his older brother in the face and neck in an argument over a PlayStation.
The boy was charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature in connection with the stabbing, an incident report states.
On Saturday, reports of a stabbing led police to Birchwood Drive in the Shannonwood subdivision about 10 p.m., an incident report states.
A 13-year-old boy stood outside of a mobile home holding a large butcher knife and a house phone, police said. He dropped both items onto the ground as officers approached, the report states.
The boy spontaneously told police that he stabbed his 14-year-old brother several times in the face and neck. He said he was tired of his brother bullying him, and that he needed to learn his lesson, the report states.
The mother of the two boys drove her wounded son to Roper Berkeley Hospital for treatment, the report states.
The wounded brother told police he didn’t want the PlayStation in his room because he was trying to clean it. An argument over the game console escalated when his younger brother started swinging a knife and cutting him, the report states.
The younger brother told police he thought his older brother should also be charged with assault for punching him as they argued.
